Australia Telecom Industry Market Report forecasts 59m mobile and fixed broadband subscribers by 2031
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sydney, Mar. 6, 2024 /Newswire/ -- Idem Est Research and Advisory, a boutique firm specialising in telecommunications and digital infrastructure market research and advisory has released a new research report titled, Australia Telecom Industry, 2024-2031.

The report states that the growth of Australia's telecommunications market is shifting towards mobile, after five years of significant growth in the fixed broadband market. Mobile subscriptions are expected to grow at an annual average rate of 2.3% between 2024 and 2031. Meanwhile, fixed broadband subscribers are projected to see an average growth rate of 1.4% over the same period, indicating a steady demand for high-speed internet services.
Total telecommunications revenue in Australia is forecasted to reach AUD45 billion by 2031, highlighting the sector's significant contribution to the economy.
"An increase in Capex spending is expected from 2024, aiming to enhance fixed-line services to 100Mbps speeds and above for 75% of the NBN's footprint, NBN will have to walk a fine between being cash flow positive and Capex spending provided its already high level of debt" says Landry Fevre, Idem Est Research & Advisory's Director.

NBN is now well engaged in its FTTP upgrade program with 3.5m premises eligible for FTTP upgrade out of 8.6m including HFC which is not yet slated for a full-fibre upgrade.

"At the current rate of FTTP upgrade adoption, Idem Est Research forecasts, it will take NBN about 20 years just to upgrade its existing FTTN and FTTC subscribers highlighting its on-demand fibre upgrade program requires an overhaul shift to a systematic upgrade of premises leveraging scale and reduced unit costs, as many FTTP programs have shown around the world.", says Landry Fevre, Idem Est Research & Advisory's Director.

Investments in the telecoms sector bottomed out in 2021 and telecommunications service providers are expected to maintain capital expenditure growth momentum in 2023-30, to an average rate of 1.8% by 2030.
Idem Est Research expects another wave of consolidation in Australia, post-NBN rollout, as margins get squeezed further.
"The report outlines examples of some newcomers branching out by reselling broadband access services as a churn reduction strategy and the increasing consumers' share of wallet," added Landry Fevre.
